    I forgot to add that im on call my very first day so that isnt helping the anxiety either.
     
  4. Do not worry. You will most certainly have adequate backup from seniors/attendings on your call nights

    Also, no book will prepare you for internship. The issues that you will deal with more often jusy require common sense more than book knowledge.

    Good luck and try to relax

    I can't believe it's been an entire year since i was starting residency. You'll be fine. Just don't be afraid for asking for help. Your seniors and staff are on call with you and won't mind you asking for help. The only bad call is the one you didn't make.

    Goodluck

    I think the OP is starting internship on Monday, not 3rd year. At any rate, it's natural to be nervous, but I'm sure you'll get through it fine.
